The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Coach for Community


Good coaches can improve the lives of players, the culture of clubs, and the strength of communities. Great coaches can develop the next generation of world-class players who inspire a nation.

In the United States, many coaches do not have access to adequate training. Young players from underserved communities especially miss the opportunity to learn and grow from a licensed and educated coach.

U.S. Soccer’s Coach for Community is a special program providing FREE education and resources to coaches, with an emphasis on reaching new coaches in underserved communities across America. In partnership with MSYSA, Coach for Community delivers in-person learning sessions and access to online grassroots licenses – at no cost to participating coaches! 


ARE YOU READY to host a free Coach for Community event to give your volunteer coaches the tools they need to create better player centered soccer environments?
